A HARLOW teenager, who was left with irreversible brain damage after battling meningitis, has won the right to multi-million-pound compensation from the NHS.

High Court judges ruled that the 14-year-old’s injuries were caused by the negligence of a hard-pressed young doctor at Princess Alexandra Hospital.

The court heard that the 25-year-old medic had failed to take a proper medical history before discharging the girl home with a suspected upper respiratory tract infection.

The girl, who was a 13-month-old baby at the time, was left with learning difficulties and profoundly deaf, London’s Civil Appeal Court heard.

The ruling means she is entitled to compensation from the NHS trust which runs the hospital.
